Welcome to Mr. Modenou’s blog. I hope you have had wonderful and restful summer.

The purpose of this blog is to post daily activities such as: lessons, homework, classroom assignments, upcoming quizzes, and tests.

Also, do not hesitate to ask for help if you do not understand the concepts that are covered in this course. If you are lost today, it will only get worse as the course continues. I am available for tutoring after school Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm. Contact me directly to schedule tutorial.

I look forward to working with each of you.

Mr. Modenou
